Create your own CM-Library

How to create a CM-Library

In this video, we introduce you to how you can take any theatre / saber choreography club work and convert it into a library that you can use to optimize your classes. These can also be used to offer as your own school's unique library of staged choreography battles. You can use this same quick lesson to create your own LUMINA Battles to introduce game play to your saber battles.

CM-J: Inverted Grip Battles

CM-G is a saber choreography modeled after the famous battle between father and son in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. This choroegraphy is inspired as there is no official documentation for the entire battle. For the purposes of editing, sometimes frames are flipped around to better capture the choreography narrative.  This particular choreography also uses locks throughout which should help the Lumen know when to hold for a particular pause in the battle to add to the drama of the fight. CM-G is worth 2 points in LUMINA. To learn its notation and more about the SaberCraft system, please visit SaberCraft.org

CM-P and CM-Q, or as we call it: Dooku vs. Anakin, is a choreography inspired by the Dooku vs. Anakin fight from Star Wars: Episode 3 - Revenge of the Sith (see original video). We are combining 2 stand-alone CMs CM 61 (worth 2 points) and CM 62 (worth 2 points) and combining them into 1 LUMINA Powerplay which we then call CM-P (worth 5 points).
